They have 4 pools/hot tub fed by a hot spring, accept pets & horses, have many delightful cabins, a large pond stocked with large trout and a paddle boat and canoe. Also have fishing access in the Crystal River within walking distance. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Highly recommend.

While the property would be terrific location getaway for families, my wife and... More
